Auckland Secondary Schools Weightlifting Championships
The Auckland Grammar School Weightlifting squad competed at the Auckland Secondary School Weightlifting Championships at the end of May. Five lifters (all of whom are boarders at Tibbs House) took part in the competitive division, with some fantastic results.
- Form 3 student D. E. Boyd won Bronze in the Under 14 age category
- Form 6 students A. D. M. Duncan won Bronze and A. D. Lipscombe won Silver in the 15 and 16 year age categories
- Form 7 student F. J. M Duncan won Bronze in the Over 16 age category
- A. D. Lipscombe also received the third-best Sinclair score in the competition, with his 80kg Snatch and 105kg Clean and Jerk. The Sinclair score is the method for calculating lifts relative to a competitor’s body weight.
Three novices (Form 5 students E. N. S. Harford-Lewis and A. Khalid, and Form 7 student A. Nair) also competed in the new-to-lifting division.
Congratulations to the entire squad and to Master in Charge Mr Charles Laing for his ongoing support and guidance.
